English translation by Peter Thompson



Old Rose.

Moss Rose created in France by Charles-Félix Verdier in 1888, and also known as ‘Oeillet Panachée’.

It is probable that he simply codified a form which had already existed for around a century.

The bud is covered with outgrowth characteristics that resemble moss, and has a slightly perfumed, double corolla, at once recognisable by its light pink petals with dark red stripes.

Also adapted to pot cultivation.
